Adam Savage of Mythbusters knows a thing or two about making the impossible happen. When he built a hovercraft for the show, he realized how relatively simple it was.
Savage enjoyed that particular project so much that he decided to build one with his kids, and then to share the instructions with the population of the internet.
The project used mostly objects that the normal family has lying around in the garage – and what you might not find lying around can be easily purchased at the local hardware store. The complete list is given below:
- 1 sheet of ¾-inch plywood (get the cheapest you can find; quality is not an issue)
- 1 leaf blower (gas or electric)
- 1 heavy-duty shower curtain
- 2 rolls of duct tape
- 1 lid from a gallon paint can
- Foam pipe insulation
- Assorted screws
